    Introduction of the Revised Employment Eligibility Verification 
    Form; Correction
    
    AGENCY: U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, DHS.
    
    ACTION: Notice; correction.
    
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    SUMMARY: On March 8, 2013, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services 
    (USCIS) published a notice in the Federal Register announcing the 
    recently revised Employment Eligibility Verification, Form I-9. USCIS 
    also announced in the DATES section of the notice that employers can no 
    longer use prior versions of Form I-9 effective May 7, 2013. In the 
    SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION section of the notice, however, USCIS 
    incorrectly described the effective date as being after May 7, 2013. 
    This notice corrects this error and clarifies that employers may no 
    longer use prior versions of the Form I-9 beginning May 7, 2013.
    
    FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Sharon Ryan, Department of Homeland 
    Security, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, Verification 
    Division, 131 M Street NE., Suite 200, Washington, DC 20529. For 
    information about the employment eligibility verification process, 
    employers can call the Verification hotline at 888-464-4218 (877-875-
    6028 for TTY) and
    
    [[Page 21145]]
    
    employees can call 888-897-7781 (877-875-6028 for TTY) for further 
    information. The public can also email the Verification Division at I-9Central@dhs.gov.
    
    Correction
    
        In the notice published in the Federal Register on March 8, 2013 at 
    78 FR 15030, USCIS incorrectly described the date on which employers 
    can no longer use prior versions of Employment Eligibility 
    Verification, Form I-9 (Form I-9). As correctly stated under the DATES 
    caption of the notice, prior versions of Form I-9 can no longer be used 
    effective May 7, 2013.
        Accordingly, USCIS is correcting the notice as follows:
        1. On page 15030, in the third column under the heading, III. Use 
    of the Revised Form I-9, in the first sentence of the second paragraph, 
    replace the word ``After'' with the word ``Effective'' so that the 
    sentence reads: ``Effective May 7, 2013, all prior versions of Form I-9 
    can no longer be used by the public.''
        2. On page 15030, in the third column under the heading, III. Use 
    of the Revised Form I-9, in the third sentence of the second paragraph, 
    replace the word ``After'' with the word ``Effective'' so that the 
    sentence reads: ``Effective May 7, 2013, employers who fail to use Form 
    I-9 (Rev. 03/08/13)N may be subject to all applicable penalties under 
    section 274A of the INA, 8 U.S.C. 1324a, as enforced by U.S. 
    Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and DOJ.''
    
    Alejandro N. Mayorkas,
    Director, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services.
